Description : An embedded key/value database for Go, especially CoreOS's etcd
bbolt is CoreOS's fork of Ben Johnson's Bolt key/value store
The purpose of this fork is to better cater to the needs of CoreOS's etcd
(github.com/coreos/etcd), and to provide the Go community with an active
maintenance and development target for Bolt; the goal is improved reliability
and stability. bbolt includes bug fixes, performance enhancements, and
features not found in Bolt while preserving backwards compatibility with the
Bolt is a pure Go key/value store inspired by Howard Chu's and the LMDB
project. The goal of the project is to provide a simple, fast, and reliable
database for projects that don't require a full database server such as
Postgres or MySQL.
Reason for packaging:
CoreOS's etcd (>= 3.2.10) began depending on this fork
instead of the original github.com/boltdb/bolt, starting 2017-11-16.
